How does faith make us right with God? Suppose you have credit card debt, and a friend decides to help you. He asks you how much you owe. “Its $10,000,” you say.
Your friend offers to wire you the money. He is as good as his word, and when the transfer is made, your debt is paid.
Your gain is his loss. What is counted to you is counted against him. That’s the language here. “Abraham believed the Lord and He counted it to him as righteousness” (Genesis 15:6).
If Christ is to credit righteousness to every believer, He must assume a massive debt, and He did this at the cross. The cumulative cost of our debt was loaded onto Christ. When you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
